From Dickensian to dystopian; Or the realities of the trickle-down economy. (Not a really a rant, just a raise of an eyebrow and a roll of the eyes.)

Tough Times For Tiny Tim,

What a cruel and tragic tale the floor supervisor had to tell;
There’ll be no overtime in this sweatshop for quite a spell;
Poor Bob Cratchit choked back the tears and his face fell,
Back to breadcrusts and gruel for Tiny Tim and Little Nell.
